Slamming the LLRC report as "one-sided", the secretary of the JHU, MP Patali Champika Ranawaka condemned the report for only recommending investigations in the Sri Lankan army and navy, whilst criticising the report for going "beyond its mandate".
Ranawaka reportedly said,
“There are no recommendations to conduct investigations against the LTTE atrocities but the army and navy”.
“The report discusses political matters beyond its mandate”.
Perhaps Ranawaka, the ruling UPFA's Power and Energy Minister, would be wise to liaise with his pals in the external affairs ministry before making such remarks.
